Sam Knob

Out hiking for the day, so we hit a couple of trails.  One was Sam Knob.  If you remember from previous pictures, here is Sam Knob (the larger knob on the right) as seen from Devil’s Courthouse.

From the start of the hike, you can not see the knob, but later you come out to a meadow (at about 5500 feet) and can see across the meadow to the Knob itself.

Great views from the 6040′ peak, but my favorite is looking back over to Devil’s Courthouse.  Kind of full circle since the first picture in this post is from the Devil over.

This is looking about West North West and you can see that the trees are starting to green up in the valley.

Back to the parking area for a little resting and water.  Remember the hiking goal is “A Tired Sibe is a Good Sibe.”  They slept all the way home.  In order, Natasha, Qannik, Rusty, Kodiak and Kiska (who was taking Stormy’s lessons on how not to pose for pictures).

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.

Visit Millerton, a fictional small town near Asheville NC, via D.K. Wall's novels. Ordinary people. Extraordinary events.
